Romney Slams Obama for Bain Remarks

Hours after President Obama doubled down on his campaign's insistence that Mitt Romney respond to questions about whether or not he lied in SEC filings related to his tenure at Bain Capital, Romney struck back, telling NBC News that such "attacks are beneath the dignity of the president." Romney attested that despite reports that his name continued to appear on government documents on behalf of the private equity firm he founded until 2002, he had absolutely no working relationship with the company after leaving in February 1999 to take over the Salt Lake City Olympic Games. The issue is important to the election because Romney's campaign has claimed that several controversial investment decisions made after 1999 were done without Romney's input. Romney insisted he did not participate in any major decisions at Bain after February 1999 and said the president’s campaign has been “outrageous” to make that charge.
